Intel Confirms Rocket Lake Processors Coming Q1 2021 With PCIe 4.0 Support

Intel has confirmed its next-gen Rocket Lake desktop processors will launch in Q1 2021 and include PCIe 4.0 support.

Intel’s John Bonini, VP and GM of Client Computing Group Desktop, Workstations and Gaming, posted in a blog today, detailing the company’s commitment to gaming. The successors to the current Comet Lake 10th Gen processors are expected, amongst other things to bring PCIe 4.0 support – currently lacking from its mainstream CPUs, which have meant they’ve lagged behind AMD’s current 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs that brought the new standard to its AM4 platform last year. Not only this, but Nvidia’s recent RTX 3000 series graphics cards also support PCIe 4.0.

The launch of Intel’s Z490 chipset and 10th Gen CPUs several months ago saw several motherboard manufacturers reveal that their new products

AMD Launches AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors: The Fastest Gaming CPUs in the World

AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series Desktop Processors built on new “Zen 3” core architecture deliver across-the board leadership performance for gamers and content creators 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) introduced the highly anticipated AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor lineup powered by the new “Zen 3” architecture. Offering up to 16 cores, 32 threads and 72 MB of cache in the top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors dominate in heavily threaded workloads1 and power efficiency2, while the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor offers up to a 26% generational uplift in gaming performance3.

Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University Utilizes AMD EPYC Processors for Scientific Research

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University have reported the deployment of AMD EPYC 7702 processors for use in a new high performance computing system.  The EPYC processor will be utilized in a supercomputer to deliver 2.36 petaflops of computing power as the institute plans to use for scientific research.  The Scientific Computing & Data Analysis Section of the institute plans to implement its new supercomputer to support intensive research from bioinformatics, computational neurosciences and physics.

“2020 is a milestone year for OIST with new research units expanding the number of research areas. This growth is driving a significant increase in our computational needs,” said Eddy Taillefer, Ph.D., Section Leader, Scientific Computing & Data Analysis Section. “Under the common resource model for which the computing system is shared by all OIST users we needed a significant increase in core-count capacity to both absorb these

HP’s New Fall Laptop Lineup Embraces Intel’s New 11th Gen Processors And Evo Program

As we approach the holiday buying season, many of the world’s leading PC vendors are announcing their latest PCs based on Intel’s newest 11th Gen Core processors. I covered Intel’s latest 11th Gen Tigerlake processors and Evo platform and the benefits they bring to the market, including the new Evo experience program.

Dell announces new XPS 13 and XPS 13 2-in-1 with Tiger Lake processors

Dell has announced new refreshes to its XPS 13 and XPS 13 2-in-1. Both are powered by Intel’s 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors and will be available in the US and Canada on September 30th (and more countries in the coming weeks). The XPS 13 starts at $999; the 2-in-1 starts at $1,249. The new XPS was first teased onstage at Intel’s Tiger Lake launch earlier this month.

The upgrades mostly look like spec bumps. In addition to the new processors, both models have received a memory update: they’re now running LPDDR4x at 4,267MHz, rather than 3,733MHz. Like many other Tiger Lake flagships, they’ll also support Thunderbolt 4 and Intel’s Xe integrated graphics.

The 2-in-1 has also gotten a similar redesign to one that the early-2020 XPS received. What you’re most likely to notice is the new screen-to-body ratio. Dell says the convertible display is 7 percent larger than those

AMD launches low-end Ryzen and Athlon processors for Chromebooks

Advanced Micro Devices is launching new Ryzen and Athlon mobile processors that serve as the brains of a new generation of Chromebook web-browsing computers.

These Zen-based mobile processors are aimed at making Chromebooks faster for web browsing, productivity tasks, and multitasking. Acer, Asus, HP, and Lenovo are set to introduce a broad range of entry-level to premium systems using the chips in their upcoming Chromebooks, both for kids learning at home during the pandemic and for home-bound professionals.

While the chips target the low end of the market, AMD is attacking one of Intel’s strongholds in a bid to gain market share. The Ryzen and Athlon processors are up to 178% faster than the previous generation of chips.

“Zen as a core is coming to Chromebook,” said AMD mobile technical lead Robert Halleck in a press briefing. “It seems like every kid has a Chromebook. Chromebooks are doing more attacking
